Newly launched Pay TV network, TSTV has denied reports that it has infringed on the copyright of Bein Sports and Turner Broadcasting which owns CNN.
In a bid to clear the air on the recently circulated report that TSTV was yet to officially secure partnership rights with the said companies, Head of Corporate Communication for TSTV, Madu Ugo released this statement on the matter as seen below:
“Our attention has been drawn to memos circulating on social media claiming TSTV illegally used the logo of Bein Sport and Tuner on its website. We wish to state that this is malicious and false. The memos circulating on social media are FAKE. Both letters were packaged in a single brown envelop and was hurriedly dropped at our office by an unidentified person.
“TSTV has a non-disclosure agreement with Beni Sports and Turner to air their stations on TSTV satellite Television. The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission team were also in Qatar to confirm our agreement with Bein Sports and also have a copy of our agreement with Bein Sport.
Nigerians should kindly disregard the documents because they are frivolous. TSTV is prepared to offer affordable and excellent digital services to Nigerians and Africans completely hitch free.”
TSTv launched on its proposed independence day date with the Federal Government of Nigeria granting it a 3-year tax relief as well as tax free dividends to all investors in the company.
TSTv enters the Nigerian market in a fashion that many analyst and subscribers to pay tv have described as a new day in the entertainment industry.
